About Gayle

Hello, my name is Gayle, and I am an artistic lifestyle photographer. I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I love God, I love my family and I love photography! Photography has been a passion of mine since I was young. I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from James Madison University where I studied design and photography. I specialize in Children's Portrait Photography, however, I love to photograph people of all ages and all lifestyles. What a joy to be able to capture that special moment that can be cherished for a lifetime. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 33 years and we have 2 awesome children.


I also have a passion for riding my new Arabian horse, Dutch, in the gorgeous mountains of Virginia. It is hard to describe the incredible feeling I get as I ride through the mountains on horseback with my friends, and of course, my camera is always with me. I thank God every day for all of my blessings and for this beautiful world that we live in.


Thank you for checking out my photos. Feel free to contact me at 540-271-5048 or send me an email at if you have any questions about my photography or would like to set up a photo session. I look forward to hearing from you!
